that mitt romney has. it's very important. the last couple weeks there's been a little bit of a movement for the president. but listen, speeches don't create jobs. rhetoric doesn't create jobs. good ideas do. and the president, despite his efforts, has failed to help the american people get back to work and i think mitt romney has better ideas. that's what this debate will be about. >> business crill crystal and o republicans have questioned whether mitt romney has been specific about his ideas. here's paul ryan on fox news sunday. >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> but i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. let me say it this way, you can lower tax rates by 20% across the board, by closing loopholes and still have preferences for the middle class for things like charitable deductions for home purchases, for health care. >> where is the math? and is mitt romney going to be under pressure in this debate to produce the specifics as to how it will all add up? >> w
was the official nominee, you criticized mitt romney. you talked about his shortcomings, a failure to connect with people as a candidate. that criticism has not gone away. and then you had his secretly recorded speech at a fundraiser where he talked about the 47% believing that they were victims much. the obama campaign made an ad that puts some pictures to those words. i want to play a portion of it and get you to respond. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince those people that they should take responsibility for their own lives. >> how will anybody buy that he cares about 100% of the country after those remarks? >> first of all, david, where i am, i couldn't see the images in the ad. i could just hear the voic
say we're going to hear from governor romney. here was a portion of your speech as the keynoter that you gave in tampa. and i'll show it to you. >> we believe it's possible to forge bipartisan compromise and stand up for our conservative principles. >> you understand there's a great appetite for compromise in the country. when it comes to dealing with our debt, this is a nominee in mitt romney who talks about an extra tax cuts, going beyond the extension of the bush tax cuts. he talks about raising defense spending. he rejects a 10 to one ratio of spending cuts to tax increases. simpson-bowles. you mentioned them. they say the math doesn't add up in the romney plan and he won't tell us how he thinks it does. >> well, listen. the country is hungry for bipartisan compromise, david. i agree with you,t( especially after the last four year was intense partisanship from this white house. and mitt romney is the only candidate in this race who has a record of showing he knows as an executive how to forge bipartisan compromise. as the governor of massachusetts, over 85% of his legislatur
romney is planning a new speech. the following two presidential debates will include that. megyn: meantime president barack obama is in henderson, nevada. some say the city of henderson is a microcosm of the economy we have seen over the past few years. yet the latest polls show the race in nevada is neck and neck and that is causing -- ed henry live in vegas. hey, ed. >> the president -- they are calling it debate camp in henderson. 20 miles from where i am right now it's an opulent resort known as lake las vegas that is symbol i of the boom and bust. that whole lake las vegas resort where the president is doing his debate prep. it's modeled after an italian village. it went bankrupt the last few years. it's now sort of coming back and the president is hoping that is a microcosm that he's pushing this recovery along slowly, not just mere in nevada but all along the country. it's interesting to hear john roberts about chris christie raising expectations for mitt romney. the president at a rally in vegas last night tried to do just the opposite and lower expectations. >> i know fo
foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on our tv screens. bill: governor romney will give a major foreign policy speech soon after the first debate ends. the first debate ends wednesday night, as you know. martha: marshalackburn has also criticized the white house response. she'll join us on what she thinks should happen next. we are getting reports of another homicide bombing killing 14 people, two of them americans. the bomber drove into a nato patrol. doug mcelway joins us live. it was a couple weeks ago the u.s. suspended patrols with afghan soldiers because of these insider attacks. have these joint patrols resumed now? >> reporter: they have. they resumed last thursday and the insider attacks have also resumed. not only the attack you just mentioned but also the suicide bomber attack, homicide bomber attack. the motorcycle laden with explosives drove into that marketplace. critics say this attacks reflect an obama foreign policy that refuses to acknowledge the reality on the ground. u.s. marines are tying tourniquets to their legs in hopes of surviving ied attacks before the
are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you think he should do that? >> yes. i think, as i said, right after the killing, that wasn't the time to talk about this. >> right. >> now is the time, several weeks later, to talk about it. john heilemann, the lead in "the new york times," mistake in faith and security seen at libya mission before benghazi raid. response to the june bomb raised confidence in local guards. this benghazi story is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the
are is a said a romney supporter now. you had one of the prominent speeches at the rnc this year. what did you think of how your man did last night? >> i think had the most decisive begin in deet bait any scd candidate has had in the last 20 years. i'll be bipartisan about it. the two best debaters have been mitt romney and bill clinton in 1992. it was a decisive win on substance. mitt romney countered barack obama last night. came back at the president in a respectful way and the president didn't have answers. it was a win on substance last night. martha: you are obviously a unique political player and observer of this process. you are the co-chair of president obama's campaign back in 2008. what brought you to the place you are now as a supporter and surrogate for mitt romney just four years later? >> i'm like about 7 million americans who voted for the president who don't plan to do so again. i'm like many americans who were democrat at one point who moved away from the democratic party. the democratic party ideas. part of it is policy. part of it is ideology and part of it is results. last
is the right place to do it. after the paul ryan speech, you have the obama campaign referring to the lies in paul ryan's speech and that's echoed by president obama's allies in the media. when you don't have the romney campaign's response robustly. for example, president obama has been running ads claiming that mitt romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of a assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. also puts harvey rosen, you can also generate enough growth to avoid a middle class tax increase. there are a loft credible folks saying something else. it's a fact he's going to raise middle class tax. >> the obama campaign, david plouffe is a chris christie of the campaign saying their campaign is built on a tripod of lies and the president has said sometimes they just make things up. >> last i checked, isn't this called politics? you have lying all the time in politics. it is our responsibility to call folks out on it. on my tv 1 show, i have a
's handling of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. governor romney out with an op-ed in "the wall street journal" laying out what he calls his vision for the middle east. reports indicate the republican nominee will give a major speech on for return policy after the first presidential debate on wednesday night. aaron miller is former advisor to six secretary is of state and he joins us now. you advised secretaries of state who are republican, who are democrat and you've noted we've been in times and periods of tension and disconnect when it comes to the middle east before. what makes now different? >> jenna, it is a very good point and the republican, democratic thing is a good point of departure. i voted for republicans and democrats. i worked for democrats and republicans. the fact is the dividing line on these issues should not be liberal conservative, left and right, republican and democrat, it should be dumb and smart. america ought to be on the smart side. jenna: what is the smart side? >> depends own the issue. the attack on obama's foreign policy is accurate. in other resp
're seeing right now. mitt romney will have a major foreign policy speech later this week. a lot of this will come out in the presidential debates. first one domestic. final preparations are underway. the first one on wednesday. k. tv r. reporter chris jose is live in denver with a preview. good morning to you, chris. >> good morning, guys. when president obama and mitt romney go head to head inside the arena two days from now, it could be the moment that defines this election. this event is so big, it will shut down six miles of i-25 for six hours right in the middle of rush hour, likely causing denver's version of karma gedden. look here. you can see preparations are ongoing inside. basically this arena, which has 7,000 seats, will be transformed into a giant television set with some 200 people in the crowd. that being said, this debate is not open to the public. it's invitation only. only a handful of tickets were given to the university and each campaign. in a few hours, students will have a chance at tickets through lottery. of course, with 11,000 students, chances are slim.
going into this debate on domestic policy, romney with an op-ed on foreign policy, already information he's going to give this big speech when so many times you and i have had strategists as a part of this panel and they say he wants to talk about the economy, not by any stretch of the imagination say what's happening in afghanistan or libya should be diminished but the domestic policy issue, getting people to work, that is supposed to be governor romney's a game. >> but it hasn't played so well particularly in the afternoon math of the 47% comment. i think they sense weakness given what transpired in libya. i heard earlier today, paul ryan talk about how we're pulling out of afghanistan at a time when troops are getting killed. if what he's saying is we should be saying and beefing up our support there, i think that's the wrong conclusions. most americans say let's get the hell out even sooner than we forecast. >> i'm going to ask only steve this question, "the washington post" debate question, who will win the debate, obama or romney? you only give one choice. >> i think if romney is
the spontaneous moments. am i right or am i wrong? >> yes, of course. i think most people in a speech have a one-liner, so to speak. they wait for the right time to use the one-liner. you never know when it'll come up. >> congressman, a thought here. mitt romney spent two years making the case against president obama's first term. three days of a national convention and acceptance speech to do so. is this a question of simply restating the arguments he's already made for larger audience, or does he have to take this debate in a new place, in a new direction? >> i think the debate is really the game changer for governor romney. he needs to do very well. i think he will do very well. and it's all in how he communicates his message. i think he will do a better job than he has in the last two years of communicating that message. >> what makes you say that? i'm curious about the -- >> we know he's capable of it. he took it to newt gingrich, the best debater. >> let me finish my point. then you're welcome to -- for two years he's been trying to hone this message at a time when i think as a big surpris
down government, both romney and his running mate will be appearing here in virginia today. another campaign stop tomorrow and then florida through the weekend, precede ago big foreign policy speech on monday. brett. >> bret: carl, thank you. spin cycle, damage control, whatever you want to call it. president obama and his people are doing it on this day after the debate. here is ed henry. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >> at his had first rally after the debate debauchle, president obama immediately went on the attack, saying his performance was not as fine as his top campaign advisors are insisting. >> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year and that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. >> yet even some veteran democrats didn't seem to be buying that explanation. >> i don't think the president took him very seriously and he should have and for a large part, the president just looked bor
and like the stagnant nature of our economy. >> and he should. the problem is mitt romney saying these things. and it's not just about the 47% that was mentioned in that speech. you have to remember, he also talked about if i was perhaps latino, it would be easier for me, i would be winning this thing already. he said a bunch of other things in that video that this is going to undermine his ability to really attack the president on domestic policies and seen as believable. because we saw mitt romney talking in private about how he really feels. so what he says on stage is going to sound hollow because we saw him behind the scenes. and that's his greatest obstacle about the whole video. it's not about the numbers and trying to break it down, it's the sentiment behind the entire video which was condescending, which came from a place of elitism. >> okay. he just misspoke. >> no, i think, carol, he makes a good point. that's going to be very difficult for romney to readdress that 47%. on the flip side, this will be the first time someone can really go after president obama over the a
the real speech. so we're going to go back to charlotte to the dnc. >> sure, sure, mitt romney loves our lakes and our trees. he loves our cars so much they even have their own elevator. in romney's world, the cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. sure he's made a lot of money. good for him. or maybe i should say good for him. president obama with the auto rescue, he saved more than one million american jobs. but it wasn't just michigan. hey, hey, hey. in florida 35,000 jobs ohio. manufacturing is rebounding. why? and on your ballot, the d is for drive forward. the r is for reverse. in this election we are drive ing forward, not back. let's reelect the great president barack obama. >> that is just the most fantastic thing i have ever seen. >> you have to appreciate a speaker who signs the speech while she's delivering. orally. we are driving forward. >> that was incredible. >> you worked with her. >> i worked with her. that's not the jennifer gramhome i knew. >> maybe she was just excited. >> clearly. >> tomorrow morning on this very program, bob woodward and mika's dad. >
that mitt romney would be speaking this hour but he hasn't started speaking yet. >> hasn't started speaking yet. >> we'll be taking his speech live. >> and maybe starting right now they'll be getting a performance from trace adkins. >> let me listen to that music for a second. ♪ i'll be kind of busy but, hey, man, i'll try ♪ ♪ later on we finished our song about stars and cars and broken hearts ♪ >> trace

ways. it is reminiscent of what he is -- one of the comments he made at the end of his televised speech after the incidents where he used that history to his favor. i think he did a good job of diffusing the attacks of romney. it is kind of dangers in a political debate to go on the attack too much. particularly in a presidential debate, where the incumbent kind of has the high ground and the challenger is the person who really has to bring that fight to them. i think it is a difficult situation. >> it was about a week and a half after the financial meltdown in wall street in which stocks plummeted because of what happened because of the leading banks. the first debate is taking place on september 28. we want to show the moderator of the debate on the campus university of -- denver this year. he is questioning about what happened on wall street and how he would react. >> let me begin with something that was said in the 1952 presidential campaign.
